Coata del Sabbione/Tassobbio




If anyone ever vists me in these parts I shall take them to Sunday lunch in this restaurant on the banks of the Tassobbio.












A restored watermill where guests eat in the courtyard. Live background music (man with accordion) and even resident dog











Naturally we had our sandwiches outside on a convienient bench.
Can't say what I'm knitting. It's for someone reading this blog .
Note the new sticks. A bit dodgy to start with, I kept getting tangled up in them and my thumbs are all blistered.




Yet they came in handy by the time we'd walked along the top of the valley (700m), down, along the stream and back up again, passing the ancient church of Pianzo on the way

And what about that view!

Oh what a lovely area to live...and you're not kidding about that view...breathtaking! I like the idea of lunch outside with accordian music and a dog, so quaint and so peaceful looking is the area. Was this just taken recently?
